A super quickie post, but I’m at my wits end to get my dressage boots to soften up and drop so I’m going to attempt the “Bathtub Method”. Basically, the bathtub method is to get the boots pretty wet and wear them around all day until they dry so they mold to your legs. After reading a ton of posts on forums about how this totally works and has never hurt expensive custom boots, I thought I’d give it a shot. They are about a 1/2 an inch-1 inch too tall right now and I worry about how they would look if I got someone to cut them down. I’ve read/heard stories about boots being cut down that ended up looking horrible. I bought these boots used for only about $100…so…here we go!
I’ll have tons of video and photos documenting the process and will be recapping how it went in tomorrows post.
